There has just been a confirmation - Flash running on the Pre! Currently it can play video using a software codec, but hardware acceleration is coming. Check out the demo video below:
I wish I could have been at the Adobe Max conference in LA to see it. But apparently the developer community will recieve the beta sometime before the end of the year.
While I took my information from blog feeds and Twitter updates, the new Flash Player 10.1 will be "smartphone enabled" with multitouch, accelerometer, and screen orientation detection. It was promised to us a few months ago, and now it's finally here. From the press release:
Adobe Systems Incorporated today unveiled Adobe Flash Player 10.1 software for smartphones, smartbooks, netbooks, PCs and other Internet-connected devices, allowing content created using the Adobe Flash Platform to reach users wherever they are. A public developer beta of the browser-based runtime is expected to be available for Windows® Mobile, Palm® webOS and desktop operating systems including Windows, Macintosh and Linux later this year.
